Offered for sale:

Used Danelectro DC-3.

This guitar is in excellent condition showing limited playing time.

Danelectro is like a cat with nine lives. This time around, the new owners, Evets Corporation, acquired the brand in the late nineties. Since then, the new Danelectro models have ebbed and flowed in popularity, but have never disappeared. And, as with the originals from the ‘50s and ‘60s, they have always been interesting, innovative and a great value. Evets production has shifted from Korea to China, and recently back to Korea. Along with accurate Danelectro reissues, the company has released updated classic models, originals, and, recently, Mosrite–inspired models.

The DC-3 model features the famous Masonite construction. The guitar has a modern bridge with adjustable saddles, and three Danelectro Lipstick pickups. What makes the DC-3 special is the Select-o-Matic switch which gives you six tones in one guitar, along with a handy "blower" switch which lets you go from any pickup selection to all three turned on at once!

Nice jangly tone and very versatile thanks to the Selecto-Matic switch that allows you to dial in pickup combinations.

Cool “Dano” sweet price!
Case not included. Cases and gig bags available separately.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.

This is a specific item that is also being offered for sale in our brick & mortar location. It is possible that it has just been sold. Please ask if it is still available before purchasing.

*It is our policy to require a signature on delivery of all musical instruments. Please let us know if you prefer no signature required when ordering or we will automatically require a signature.

If you prefer your item to be sent without a required signature Imperial Guitar and the selected carrier can no longer be responsible for the security of the package once it has been delivered.
